Relief from Post-concussion Syndrome in Stow Ohio

Post-concussion, concussion, head injury, neck injuryWith the start of the new school year, football, is in full session and with that comes concerned parents hoping their children do not suffer an injury that could lead to a concussion.  More awareness is being brought forward in the news and in movies such as, Concussion, It is important to recognize the risks,  symptoms, and solutions to the problem.

Studies have recently emerged offering evidence suggesting a strong correlation between traumatic brain injuries and neuropsychiatric disorders.  For example, schizophrenia, depression, mania, Parkinson’s disease, anxiety, including obsessive-compulsive disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder.1 These conditions typically will arise if the player sustains repetitive injuries and improper or no relief care is administered.  Concussions result in more than 100,000 emergency department visits in school-aged children in the United States.2 This number is expected to be higher as many parents, coaches and trainers sometimes do not catch the more subtle symptoms.
